Nigeria Accepts Israel’s Offer to Help Find Kidnapped Girls
The Nigerian government announced today they will accept Israel’s offer of assistance to find the young girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram cavemen.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has accepted an Israeli offer to assist in the efforts to find hundreds of schoolgirls who were kidnapped by the extremist Islamist group Boko Haram, AFP reported.
The offer was made on Sunday by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who spoke with Jonathan by phone. “Israel expresses deep shock at the crime against the girls,” Netanyahu told the Nigerian president, according to the prime minister’s bureau. “We are ready to help in finding the girls and fighting the cruel terrorism inflicted on you.”
A statement from the Nigerian president’s office in Lagos later on Sunday said that Jonathan had “briefed Mr Netanyahu on actions already being taken by Nigeria’s armed forces and security agencies to locate and rescue the girls, saying that Nigeria would be pleased to have Israel’s globally acknowledged anti-terrorism expertise deployed to support its ongoing operations.”
